Ok, I am so not an Exchange dude but here goes;

I've installed Exchange 2010 hub transport, client access, & mailbox roles on member server in coexistence with Exchange 2003. Exchange 2010 test mailboxes can send & receive mail from Exchange 2010 mailboxes (from local MDB) and can send mail to Exchange 2003 mailboxes and to mailboxes outside over internet, BUT Exchange 2010 mailboxes cannot receive mail from my Exchange 2003 mailboxes nor from mailboxes outside over internet. This sounds like a connector problem to me, but I cannot figure out what the dealio is. Any and all help would be ginormously appreciated.

Where is port 25 from the internet coming into? The exchange 2003 server?

You need an edge transport server installed or an anonymous receive connector on a hub transport to receive mail from the Internet direct to exchange 2010

During the coexistence setup a 2 way routing group connector should have been setup, has it? And are your exchange 2003 servers members of the exchange legacy interop group?

port 25 goes to spam filter which points to Exchange 03. I have anonymous receive from exchange 03. I do not see an exchange legacy interop group. Where would I find that?

On your 2003 server, create a routing group connector that connects to your Ex2010 routing group.  Remote bridgehead should be your Ex2010 server.

Search for the exchangelegacyinterop group it should reside under the "Exchange Security Groups" OU.

Please verify that you can't email from E2k3 to E2k10?

Also confirm that under the recipient\mailbox OU under E2k10 EMC you can see mailboxes from E2k3 and E2k10

Fascinating.  I've not yet run into an issue like that.  Did you need to alter anything from the default when you recreated them, or did just recreating them do the trick?

As the issue was with the Ex2010 connectors, not 2003, I rescind my objection.
